A&E development VP Scott Lonker has left the U.S. cable net to join CAA as an agent in its alternative television department.

Lonker, with A&E’s development team since August 2007, oversaw the development and production of non-fiction, alternative and reality series at both A&E and Bio. At A&E, he’d worked on such series as Dog the Bounty Hunter, Obsessed, and The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty.

Lonker’s move to CAA marks his return to the agency world, as he joined A&E fresh from working at the William Morris Agency’s New York office, where he worked with unscripted, scripted, comedy and animation properties and talent.

An A&E spokesperson said there’s no word on a replacement for Lonker at present. A CAA spokesperson said that Lonker would start at his new position in August.
